BY PUBLICLY EXPRESSING HIS CONFIDENCE IN GIFFORD PINCHOT. THE PRESIDENT HAS NOW PLACED THAT OFFICIAL IN A POSITION WHERE HE CAN WHOLLY DISREGARD THE ATTACKS OF HIS OPPONENTS. By Ernest G. Walker. (Mail Special to The Advertiser.). BEVERLY, Mass., September 14. It is now goodbye to the summer capi tal and to the summer White House by the sea. There has been a tumultuous week, tumultuous for Beverly in par ticular and sufficiently tumultuous in eeneral to make the outside world take 1 13 suspected that typhoid germs have A .general and thorough campaign against typhoid fever in particular and all contagious or infectious diseases in general has 'been inaugurated by President Mott-Smith of the Board of Health, who says that there is entirely too much typhus prevalent throughout the islands and that something must be done to check it. Last Friday Mr. Mott-Smith, accom panied by Dr. Pratt of the Board of Health and." Dr. Duncan, the food analyst, made a trip by automobile to the Industrial School, where there are now three cases of typhoid. They made a thorough inspection of the sanitary conditions at the school and did not find them entirely satisfactory. The water for the school is drawn from a spring that is on lower ground than the school. It has been walled in with con crete to prevent contamination, but it just a wee bit of notice.

Of course there are many citizens who have that experience. The President's "speechifying" troubles, however, are many fold greater than those of the average public speaker. He must make from one to half a dozen speeches near Jy every day now for oti days. He wants to emphasize a few new ideas and also to amplify a number of old ones in the time of his long journeying. His secretaries have collected a big bundle of manuscript, bearing data on numerous topics. As things have oc curred that the President wished to dwell upon, he has asked that data be prepared. This information has already been packed carefully away in his spe cial car so that it can be fished out on a moment's notice. For, while the President has prepared some of his speeches during the last three or four nights, he is starting to Boston this af ternoon with practically no speech writ ten out entirely. No advance copies have gone to the press associations for release on the day of delivery. In large part the President intends to .speak extemporaneously on his western tour. When he speaks on national for stry or tariff, or reclamation, or any one of a dozen other topics, certain basic facts will be at his hand, but most of the President's assertions regarding those facts will be spoken on the spur of the moment. This method is nothing new, although sometimes heretofore the President has made more preparation. He has always been averse to making up set speeches in advance and has put off such tasks till the very last. His pleasure in his vacation has been so keen that he has (Continued on Page Five.) when the telephonic report of a physi cian of a death from diphtheria enabled President.

PUNGHBQWL DEMON FEUDS FOR HIS LIFE One Silva, sometime known as the Punchbowl Demon, a pugilist of poor repute, got himself into pilikia at the Princess skating rink last night. Silva thinks that he is a fighter. In spite of the terrible lickings that he has taken from various professionals in the ring, he still thinks that he is a terror on the public streets. Last night he made a nuisance of himself in the Princess rink. He soak ed a sailorman in the eye and then hurried to the repair room. But there his courage ended. He stayed in the repair room and could not be induced to come forth. He knew that a bunch was waiting for him outside and he felt sure of safety within the mystic precincts ot the rink. When Joe Cohen asked him to with draw, he refused and cowered down with his head hidden in a mass of skate wheels. Joe argued for some time and then quit. Joe locked up the place and latest reports are that frenzied sailors were walking up and down the outside of the Princess skating rink and that the Demon was still burying his face in the pile of skate-wheels. wfcT?

Yesterday Johan.Vasora was arrested. He was disguised as a laborer and attempted to board a steamer at Prince Rupert Bay. He is the man who recently escaped from Finland, and is suspected of having stolen $180,000 from the postal department.

The proprietor was there and said most positively that if I were killed after the baseball game, he would look after my widow. But that was a mere side issue.

Everything was perfect in every way. The sun shone as it should shine, the train reached the Peninsula at the time scheduled, everybody alighted and then there was much talk about the baseball game.

Bonine's new moving pic ture theater on Hotel street was open ed last evening under auspicious cir cumstances, the place being packed throughout the time the pictures were thrown on the screen. The Bonine, as Mr. Bonine has named his place of amusement, has the look of a real, cosy theater. The seating arrangements are excellent, being graded downward to ward the footlights so that every seat gives the patron an unobstructed view of the screen. The latter is a huge picture frame and the pictures are so adjusted and focused that they set perfectly within this handsome border. The arrangement of side curtains and American flags gives the stage a fine effect. 4.v J--rr";t Twt, ot. , Mr. Bonine seeks tor pertect iocus- torneys were instructed to prepare and ing and the pictures he shows are al present briefs, to be in within five days. , most perfect and the figures are the proper life size. His first pictures last evening were home scenes and included his fine series of the Honolulu Fire Department in action, responding to a fire alarm. This picture was recent ly taken by Mr. Bonine. This was followed by the Honolulu Shriner's paradeand a Pathe picture which was quite amusing. The famous series of pictures showing the Atlantic fleet bluejackets on parade here last year when they were decorated with leia by Honolulu society women, the big white battleships and scenes on the docks, eaught popular favor and there was much applause. The entire en tertainment was up to the high stand ard sot by Mr. Bonine, and .his audi ence was most appreciative. Throughout the evening Sonny Cunha presided at the piano and add ed not a little to the pleasure of the evening. An amusing sketch was also presented by Frank May and a young Hawaiian employe of the Naval Sta tion who took off a couple of Japanese, one making a speech in Japanese and the other interpreting into pidgin Eng lish. This was a side-splitting interpolation.
